Salesian Women’s Lenten Silent Retreat
The story of the dishonest steward in Luke 13 is baffling on one level as Jesus seems to commend the man for cheating his master. It’s not his dishonesty that Jesus praises, but his clever strategy of doing favors for his master’s creditors in the hope that they might do him some favors in return as he faces the impending loss of his comfortable position. We’ll examine the dynamics of doing favors and especially explore the notion of doing favors for God as we probe the gift and wisdom of the “Direction of Intention” of St. Francis de Sales. St. Paul challenged the Colossians to “do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus….” (Colossians 3:17) Wouldn’t it be something to actually do that?
